One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well I've done a lot of amazing things. I live, breathe, feel loving and loved, caring and cared. I see, smell, feel, hear, sense, and taste. Just to name a few.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm getting increasingly interested in Chinese philosophy and medicine these days and been reading the Book of Changes.
I'm also interested in alternative medicine and healing, spirituality, energy, stuff like that. Would be cool if you were interested too!
Other than that, sometimes I'm super fascinated by astrophysics, time travel, and sci-fi.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm an active listener and can offer good company (hopefully). I think we all desire to really be heard, to varying degrees.
Also a good-ish(?) vegetarian cook.
